. i think they feel energized, they feel like they have an opening against the obama administration. they're expanding it to include criticism of the health care act which we'll see the vote on later this afternoon in the house because, of course, the irs is the enforcement agency in that individual mandate that has anchored so much conservatives. >> is there anything in that hundred pages of e-mails that the white house released yesterday afternoon that indicates that there is any there? >> not really. thank you for mentioning the piece on time.com if people want to reads it. and i saw nothing new there to advance the story we already knew. we knew this already, but as a reminder, benghazi is more of a cia story than is generally appreciated. that facility there was primarily a cia site where they were doing a lot of work including trying to contain some of the arms they had gotten loose. the cia disputed who was in charge. at the end of the day, it was the deputy cia director morale who took out a lot of language whose deletion republicans object to. by the way, every iteration of
